First used in 1958, Chevrolets Impala nameplate continues to signify outstanding style, luxury, and value today. Following the more flamboyantly styled models built through 1964, the full-size Chevy line was totally restyled with smartly tailored bodylines that looked exactly right on the 119-inch wheelbase chassis. Proportions were excellent, with GMs designers somehow making the big Chevrolets look trim and visually smaller than their generous overall dimensions might have suggested. In addition to their handsome looks, the new Chevrolets featured a wide array of available engines and power teams, plus the GM divisions amazing list of factory-available features, options, and amenities. Another Chevrolet big-car advantage was performance and adaptability to select modifications as desired, providing a stylish and sporty automotive choice to buyers requiring good passenger space and comfort. The basic 1965 Impala design would continue for 1966 with only select styling updates deemed necessary. Buyers agreed, with the entire 1965 Impala line chalking up strong sales of 654,900 cars in total. The Impala Convertible was an important part of that success, offering glamorous open-air style for only around $3,000. As when new, the 1965-66 Impala remains highly sought-after by collectors and Chevy enthusiasts today.
